Renew from Carpenter

Renew™ is produced with Carpenter Co.'s Natural Foam Technology™ process, ensuring the consistency and quality Southern Lady customers have come to expect. It's bio-based, allowing customers to leave a smaller environmental footprint, while reducing our nation's dependency on foreign oil.

Renew™ is fully recyclable, is PBDE free, and is made without the use of CFC's. Renew™ is available in a wide assortment of firmness and densities. Carpenter Co. utilizes their expertise in manufacturing Qualux™ high resiliency foams to produce the first bio-based HR foam. Endorsed by the Reinhart Technical Center, the performance of Renew™ is second to none.

CertiPUR-USCarpenter Co. continually applies new technologies and the highest standards of quality for cushioning products. The CertiPUR-US® certification gives customers the assurance that their focus remains on quality, performance, comfort and environment. CertiPUR-US® certification requires low-emissions for indoor air quality, and products made without ozone-depleters, formaldehyde, PBDE's, prohibited phthalates, lead, mercury and other materials of concern.

Like Southern Lady, Carpenter Co. spends every waking moment thinking about comfort. They are the world's largest maker of polyurethane foam and the leading processor of polyester fiber for the bedding industry. Carpenter Co. understands the importance of continually investing in state-of-the-art manufacturing processes to maintain high standards of quality. They insist on minimum density standards and unwavering consistency from their manufacturing plants.

Carpenter Co.'s commitment to innovation and comfort ensures their position as the industry leader. The Reinhart Technical Center, located in Richmond, VA, is devoted to improving sleep surfaces. Understanding how cushioning and support material work with the body is vital in providing a higher level of comfort and support. Their sleep research facility and comfort scientists use the most sophisticated technology to create new materials that give you a restorative night's sleep.

 

Future Foam

Future Foam developed the HARVEST® line of foam products, which utilize a blend of natural oil (such as Soy) polyol and conventional polyols. This benefits farmers looking for new markets for the crops they grow. Best of all, HARVEST® brand foam performs as well as conventional foam, allowing consumers to contribute to the farm economy and environment
without any sacrifice of comfort.

We realize the importance of protecting the environment and we work hard with others in the industry to minimize any effect we might have on it. The use of polyol made from natural renewable oils is one way that we can help the environment. Polyol, made from natural oil such as soy-based, helps the environment in the following ways:

  • The use of natural oil polyols reduces our dependency on petrochemicals and lowers green house gas emissions.
  • Recent life cycle analysis calculations show that using 44,000 pounds of natural oil polyol can create a 271,000 pound reduction in carbon footprint.
  • The majority of soybeans farmed in the US use sustainable farming practices.
  • Today, 95% of farmers participate in the USDA sustainability program.
  • Natural oil polyols are produced from rapidly renewable resources.

CertiPUR-USFuture Foam's headquarters, in Council Bluffs, Iowa, is in the middle of the agricultural heartland of America. The use of renewable natural oil resources can help to improve the economic conditions of rural communities.

Future Foam has successfully completed independent product evaluation and analysis procedures, and has achieved CertiPUR-US® certification.
